2014+ Leveling Kits

Recommended Posts

I didn’t see many good reviews for the Rancho quick lift struts. I just leveled my 2018 Silverado with the Fox 2.0’s and Rexlez uca’s, pretty happy with the ride but I think I may add a top spacer to get another 1/2” up front. Haven’t done anything to the rear yet. 
I’m running 285/60/R20 Toyo RT’s on 20x9 ‘0’ offset wheels with a slight rub at the rear of inner fenders. The extra 1/2” should take care of that.

Link to UCA? Never heard of that before

These look like 285/75-17.  I have 285/70-17 and your tires look noticeably taller.

Love the blue mrskiff.  Reminds me of my old indigo blue 97 Tahoe Z71 two door.  Had the grille, bumpers, mirrors, and handles color matched like your Silverado.

Looks fantastic IMHO.

👍👍

Do you have any side shots without the wheel turned?

I have a 2in front leveler. Everything seems fine except on low speeds parking lot type areas I notice a banging sound and or heavier than normal vibration then the parking lot or road should give.

I put some spacers on the truck while the wheels were removed I noticed the upper control arm resting on what appears to be a stop of some sort. Having looked at some new vehicles over the weekend I notice there looks like there's about an inch space between these upper control arms and the stop. Here is a picture of what I have. The dealer installed these when the truck was new. Were they installed wrong? Should they be sitting on the stop?

Thanks for any advice or comments, I may be putting on a regular 3 inch lift anyway but I don't want to run into any more problems with a rough ride or a heavy banging rattle noise from the front end.

The first picture is a three-quarter ton at the Dealer's unmodified

The second picture is my driver side, there is really no gap between the underside of that upper arm and the stop.5570f53f30153858f5f6561e7c15637e.jpgefb3a5eaf8e572835e0767ea881f6b5b.jpg

Did u get wheel alignment after level put in?  Verify that with ur dealer cause that can cause vibration. 

 

Level kit will reduce clearance between UCA and bump stop which means limited down travel so if u hit a speed bump bit too fast it could clunk and hit the stop.  I think my bump stop has a rubber piece un it but I dont see one in urs
